Jind%C5%99ich Franti%C5%A1ek Boblig of Edelstadt

Jind?ich Franti?ek Boblig z Edelstadtu (German: Heinrich Franz Boblig von Edelstadt) (1612 in Zlaté Hory; German: Edelstadt – 27 January 1698) was a lawyer and imperial lay inquisitor who led the witch trials in Northern Moravia in the late 17th century.[1]

He was active in the ?umperk region, particularly in the town of Velké Losiny. Boblig was responsible for burning of approximately 100 people accused of witchcraft. The list of executed included two priests who attempted to stop the trials, and Kry?tof Lautner, Dean of ?umperk.

Biography

Little is known about his early life. His father, Burgomaster in Zlaté Hory, was ennobled and received the mark of nobility "z Edelstadtu" (von Edelstadt, of Edelstadt) in 1591.[1]

Jind?ich Boblig studied law, probably in Vienna, but he did not complete his studies and later was titled only as juris candidatus. Until his participation in the witch trials of the ?umperk region, he probably led a law practice in Olomouc.[1]
